I am a performance maker working with text, movement, video, and time art. I uses critical theory, popular and unpopular culture and art to create works of autofiction. My work has appeared in gallery, theatres, online, and at music and arts festivals. I have a particular interest in queer femininity, time and feelings.
I’ll be here: Lucas Hnath’s A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney (performer) July 11-14 Provocare Festival.
And here: Pancake Opus by Sandra Fiona Long (dramaturg) May 30 – June 10 La Mama.
You can also find me as Teen Supreme in femme-super-group Expen$$$ive – an ongoing live art project with artists Casey Jenkins and Emilia Athanadiasis.
Recent projects include: my solo work Being Dead (Don Quixote); a collaboration between siblings The Eternity of the World ; and a 24hr performance in collaboration with Tenfingerz Wake Me When It’s Over.
I have worked MKA: Theatre of New Writing, Nicola Gunn / Sans Hotel, Casey Jenkins et al. and my work has been developed with the support of the Australia Council, City of Yarra, Moonee Valley Council, Bundanon Trust and Union House Theatre.
I hold a Masters in Writing for Performance from the VCA (2016), attended Live Art Camp (Triage/Arts House 2014), Director’s Lab (Melbourne Festival/Theatre Works 2016) and was mentored by Patricia Cornelius in 2013 through Australia Council’s Jump Mentorship Program.
IMPORTANT: Please be respectful.
I am genderqueer and use the pronouns they/them/their.
A glorious mess… with a serious purpose.
Beautiful theatre… enormous intellect.
I am inspired by the work of Kathy Acker, Jeanette Winterson, pop music as a phenomenon, Kyary Pamyu-Pamyu, no-wave music and sensibility, old musicals, Pinterest., the colour pink, an unreliable memory, Luce Irigaray, Jack Halberstam, stripper culture, illegible identities, safer sex, slippery bodies, sick minds and my experiences of love, relationship anarchy, power and Queerness.
